Winster Village Shop is a community-owned project: the shop is owned by the village. The shop employs a locally-based manager, together with three full-time staff. A number of volunteers from Winster also help make sure that the shop runs smoothly and looks attractive - stacking shelves, setting up displays, working on the till, collecting and delivering goods, and managing the daily orders from our wide range of suppliers.

A Board of Directors review the direction and financial performance of the shop - to make sure that local needs are met, to check that we are meeting all legislative requirements, and to develop programmes for the future of the business.

We try to offer a distinctive shopping experience: our 'Winster Corner' promotes Winster-related products (call in and get a copy of the fascinating Village Map, for example); our window displays are a delight, and illustrate a local or national activity or event.

We welcome new ideas for products and services, recognising the need for choice - whether our customers live locally or are on holiday in Winster or the surrounding area.
